    Huge Comparison of [almost] all the Best Bluetooth Headphones - post your own comparisons here

    Hi Belgian,   it depend from your head. Heads have different size, just like headphones. On my average sized head none of them would fall, but the M2OEBT is a bit tighter and this may help in case you are going to vigorously shake your head or other strange stuff. You could also bend the...

    ATH WS99BT Discussion & Impressions

    You have lowered nothing. Your 0 is -21db. You have all frequencies above your 0. With the 4 and 8 k on +5db as you have them now (21-16=5) and a Q of 1.41, you have the presence zone (6k) boosted around +3.5db. This is the harshness you feel. Then you are boosting the low mids which are...

    ATH WS99BT Discussion & Impressions

    Young man you have a boost of 5 db on the frequencies you found boosted out of the box? Is that a masochistic maneuver?

    XTZ Headphone Divine DISCUSSION THREAD

    For some reason all my subscriptions were set to "site only" so I missed all these replies. Better so, I was and am under stress preparing the ultimate comparison (it's around 120 HPs already, I want it done NOW and I will never again do something like this till I am retired old and rich and...

    Audio Technica ATH-SR5BT: Discussion Thread

    Forgot to say: more than "prepared not to like them" you seem not prepared about what you really want. You named 4 headphones with completely different sound and form/dimensions and functions and price and look.

    Audio Technica ATH-SR5BT: Discussion Thread

    the bass is indeed neutral out of the box, can be EQed anyway to achieve a more satisfactory level, although as I have explained in the review they are just not a basshead can. I would not define their bass "weak", weak is a negative expression and implies something wrong which should be...

    ATH WS99 Replacement Pads

    It's not a mod. I did not put anything in the headband, the headband comes just like that, with the core made of steel. Most headbands do. So, being made of steel, it is possible to bend it to make the clamping force stronger or weaker. I have felt that a stronger clamping force on my head was...

    ATH WS99BT Discussion & Impressions

    I don't experience this, but I have noticed that their response on the mids (specially the low mids, in my perception, as I have found them a bit accentuated at the beginning) improves over time. Now that I have a second, new pair, I can confirm that there was a real burn-in, no mental...

    Guys, I wonder if anybody is willing to spend 5 minutes of his time to help me giving a meaning to the loss of almost 400 Euro which I suffered while trying to be helpful to the Community compiling the most complete article on BT Headphones ever. Please have a look HERE and leave your feedback...

    You will have to redefine your priorities then, to understand what you want to buy.

    How does the Warranty work in the US, legally speaking? Can a producer refuse to offer it?

    Filed a complaint to FTC and chatted with an operative who told me: "We operate on a national level, which means we must have numerous complaints before our attorneys and investigators proceed. We do not assist in getting you a replacement". Yeah. US Consumers Rights.   My question was then...

    How does the Warranty work in the US, legally speaking? Can a producer refuse to offer it?

    @ProtegeManiac, ok, I understand your points, it must be difficult to live in the US and travel around states with different laws or buying from different states. I wonder if a customer living in the state b can buy online from a seller living in the state a, and which laws would apply. I would...

    ATH WS99 Replacement Pads

    For outdoor? I would not necessarily mind, if they would be my only pair and I would be addicted to their sound with HM5. But they do indeed look more bulky. Some people told me they don't feel like wearing them in public. But there are BT HP which are bigger, like the Def Tech Symphony 1...

    New Zealand Headphone Meet MK II, 2015 Ed.

    You seem to have overlooked the detail about me coming on 2017. But you guys just go on, there plenty of time to make more meetings when I am there. As said, I'll stay at least two years. If anybody is willing to help me with some tips about the most clever ways to find a decent and cheap...

    Headphone Burn-in

    The fact that something can't be proven doesn't mean it's not true. Surely not 100% false. Maybe some people exaggerate a bit about the precision of their burn in, maybe its effectiveness is very inconstant from HP to HP, but something is surely there. Saying that it is all bulls... is as wrong...

    I don't own one anymore. There only is one version so I'm not sure about the question. Prices are subject to change more than mood.

    Headphone Burn-in

    Well, I always smile when I see somebody doing things I've done :) And I can see Castle in buzzing fluo light. I'm pretty sure he did experiment with cryogenic already. That's why a part of him got frozen and he became sarcastic. We should try next 1 April changing his fluo light (pretty...

    Headphone Burn-in

    I believe in burn in. And in true love. I just could not find yet a way to prove the existence of any of them. Specially true love. I've tried to listen long enough but it was not enough. There was always a moment when I had to speak, and that was generally the end. The only headphone which I'm...

    I think the JBL Synchros S400BT may be what you want. They are nicely V-Shaped, with bright highs, a powerful bass which has both a good punch and good rumble, and a nice biting aggressive direct sound. Alternatively the Audio Technica ATH-WS99BT with stock pads, a wonderful dry punch, very...

    Hi! I have a few ideas, but can you say which kind of sound you want, apart for the energy? Rather balanced, or bright, warm, bassy? Would you use EQ? Do you prefer a rumbling or a punchy bass? On or Over Ear?

    Mika did you read my review? The SR5BT are not energetic. Are not dull, not boring, not "smooth and unable to engage". But have a quite neutral bass. Now, not all music needs a powerful bass to be energetic, but I find that on quite some music they give a more enjoyable than engaging sound, more...

    No need to quote my whole post :) People with smartphone would appreciate. You'll need to a/b them. I very strongly disagree with taking them off from the list. One of the most detailed and transparent BT headphones on the market, the first Sony with a tight controlled bass, very fine and...

    you do not need to read billions of posts, but you need to start asking better question. This one has got no answer. And if you would have read at least ONE post, the first one, you would know why.     I am 200% sure your unit was either defective or a fake. Hey, come on, do you REALLY...
